New Super Dearman

I have an old sax and need info. The case is a Buescher, Elkhart, Ind., the mouthpiece says "Selmer" and "Paris," and the horn has this engraved on it: "New Super Dearman." It also has "Dallas" engraved on it below the "New Super Dearman" and "foreigh" stamped into it. I can't find a model or serial number. Is it worth rebuilding? It needs a total rebuild.

    Re: New Super Dearman

    Hi John I have the same Alto and can confirm it was manufactured in th 1950's for Dallas of London - the same people who introduced the Grafton used by Charlie Parker! In fact they share the same case. As far as I know the Super Dearman was manufactured in Eastern Europe and is a Conn copy. Note the Nail File G key. Mine is still in 1st class condition and plays very well probably because they were extremely well built so I think it would be worth renovating.
